THE ROAD up to Moel Famau's car park will be closed for five days, Denbighshire Council has said.

Carriageway patching work is due to commence at Bwlch Pen Barras, Moel Famau later this month including the installation of new road markings to prohibit vehicular parking to address traffic congestion and associated damage to the grass verges.

Work is due to start on Monday, March 13 and is expected to take up to five days to complete.

The road will be closed for vehicular traffic and pedestrians from the entrance of the top car park for a distance of 1.2 miles in an easterly direction towards the A494.


Within the section of road closure, all adjoining side roads shall be closed for the duration of the works including access to the Moel Famau, Moel Fenlli and Coed Moel Famau Forest Car Parks.

Access to residential and business premises which are located on Bwlch Pen Barras will be available although some delay and disruption may be experienced and residents are encouraged to keep journeys to a minimum to reduce traffic congestion

The alternative diversion route will be signed accordingly. Normal working hours shall apply to the works.

Cllr Barry Mellor, Denbighshire Council's lead member for environment and transport, said: “We apologise for any inconvenience that these essential works may cause and we are grateful for local cooperation and patience during this time to ensure that the works are completed as quickly and efficiently as possible.”
